Eggs Benedict different from the most well known version but these are soooo good!


6 slices of bread cut thickly (we use our homemade Country White)
6 slices of a ripe tomato
1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese
1 and 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup Half and Half
3/4 cup milk (we use skim)
4 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste


This dish is so versatile, you can prepare most of it the day before serving or the morning that you will set this magnificent dish before your family and guests.
"Shingle" the bread in a greased 9 by 13 baking dish.
Mix liquids together and pour half of those over the bread and sprinkle with half of the grated cheeses.
Top with the remainder of the egg mix.

Bake uncovered 15 minutes and then remove from the oven. Top with the tomato and the remaining cheese.
Bake 12-13 minutes longer.

Top with a poached egg and Hollandaise if desired.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 cup chocolate chips
First of all? I recommend doubling the recipe.
You won’t regret it
Preheat oven to 375ºF (175ºC).
Line a cookie sheet or two with parchment.
Cream butter and sugars until creamy, then add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Add Peanut butter and continue to beat until combined.
Add flour, baking powder and salt and stir to combine.
Add chips and stir again.
Drop small spoonfuls of dough onto parchment (you should get a dozen per sheet).
Bake 12 minutes or until just golden.
Remove from oven and allow to rest on the sheet 1 minute before removing with a spatula.
